The couple, both heading health units in Kob and Nja Etu were returning from work on board their motor bike when military stopped them on the way.
Njong Patrick and Azah Nancy had their eyes blindfolded before receiving several bullets at close range according to witness account.Their corpses were only discovered later abandoned under plantains beside the bush. The deceased couple leaves behind five children.
Surrounding residents have confirmed that they were shot by military who accused them of treating Ambazonia fighters. Health personnel have become targets on either side, but the military has carried out genocidal exercises on many. In Batibo, the health unit is deserted after soldiers stormed the place beating Doctors, Nurses and patients. The latter later ran for safety abandoning the hospital.
The killing of these health personnel is just one of the dangerous military activities in the area recently. Shootings and burning of houses in Mbenwgi has become the order of the day. Close to 10 villages have been affected so far and many have been left stranded.
The Acha Tugi hospital, one of the biggest in Momo Division has been deserted. Tugi has been a battle ground for das now between Ambazonia fighters and Security forces. Bridges linking the area to other localities in town have been destroyed and a military attempt to rebuild the bridges has led to serious gun battle.
Meantime, the Divisional Officer for Misaje Subdivision, Oscar Bame has joined his ancestors. He died Sunday morning at the Banso Baptist hospital after a brief illness.
